Heavy breasts can lead to physical discomfort, a variety of medical problems, shoulder indentations due to tight bra straps, and extreme self-consciousness. Dr. Guy Cappuccino performs breast reduction in Maryland so you can enjoy smaller, better-proportioned breasts.
Potential Risks From Breast Reduction Surgery
Breast reduction is not a simple operation, but it's quite safe when performed by a highly qualified and experienced surgeon like Dr. Guy Cappuccino. As with any surgery, there is always a possibility of complications, including bleeding, infection, or reaction to the anesthesia.
The procedure does leave noticeable, permanent scars, although they'll be covered by your bra or bathing suit. (Poor healing and wider scars are more common in smokers.) The procedure can also leave you with slightly mismatched breasts or unevenly positioned nipples.
Future breastfeeding may not be possible, since the surgery removes many of the milk ducts leading to the nipples. Some patients may experience a permanent loss of feeling in their nipples or breasts.
